Proustite (ruby silver) on Native Arsenic
stock #8.1-424
Schlema, Erzgebirge
Saxony, Germany
5.3 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $120


A large and nicely textured chunk of Native Arsenic is loaded with vugs and zones of sparkling small crystals of brilliant red Proustite. From the famous old location of Schlema, this would be a very good specimen of Arsenic all on its own. The addition of bright Proustite makes it quite special. Many of the Proustites have damage as seen on magnification but some of the crystals are pristine and complete. They have not lost the Ruby Silver color so this makes a nice contrast
Native Copper (Psuedo after Cuprite) w. Malachite and Cuprite
stock #AC-052
Bisbee, Warren District, Mule Mts., Cochise Co.
Arizona, United States
7.3 x 6.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $360


Another classic Bisbee association, in an unusually fine specimen this is almost all native Copper in crude crystals. The Copper is a psuedomorph after Cuprite, with some unaltered zones and small Cuprite octahedrons that still have red color. Fibrous crystallized Malachite sprays add a rich green color. Magnification reveals some Calcite that is green colored due to the Copper. The definition of this piece is excellent, it is quite old it was sold by Schortmanns in the 60's and comes with that old label.
Calcite complex twins with Hematite Phantoms
stock #8.1-036
Daye Iron Mine, Edong Mining District, Huangshi Prefecture
Hubei, China
9.9 x 7 CM (cabinet)
price: $420


An exceptional example of a very esthetic Daye Calcite. This locality has produced the some very fine Calcites, which are immediatly recognizable. The best are glassy, clear, gemmy and have a orange-rose blush from included Hematite. Like most locations the very best are quite rare. This is one of those. The larger crystal is 4.4 CM across, the matrix is covered by a carpet of gemmy glasslike crystals to just under a centimeter. The Orange color is especial good on this, there is no eye visible damage on the display face. The back of the matrix is partly sawn from collecting, there is damge that is not visible from the front. I think these will be regarded as important worldclass Calcites when they are no longer available, much like English material. Very affordable for this quality!
Galena on Quartz
stock #8.1-396
Krushev Dol Mine, Madan, Rhodope Mts.
Madan, Bulgaria
7.1 x 5.7 (cabinet)
price: $380


Another gem from Madan, this is a shining Galena with outstanding form on a greenish quartz matrix. This large crystal (5.9 CM) has excellent hoppering on the triangular faces and the luster is fine. Sits well for display, there is no damage or chipping on the display face it is contacted in the back. It is possible to see a hairline crack in part of the Galena which is common at this locality, It is not damage per se but likely a side effect of cooling. If you like Galena you should love this one it is different and esthetic!
Wulfenite
stock #8 ARIZ 792
Red Cloud Mine, Silver District, Trigo Mts, La Paz County
Arizona, United States
1.5 x 1.3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $150


A small Red Cloud thumbnail that is simply esthetic! essentially perfect, there is no damage that can be seen by naked eye, very tiny edge chip is found at 20X magnification. The matrix hosts a sharp deep orange-red Wulfenite that is 9 mm in size, and has some micro calcite rhombs on it as well. Small but sweet.
Mimetite (Botryoidal Yellow)
stock #6.2-936
San Pedro Corralitos, Municipio de Casas Grandes
Chihuahua, Mexico
6.7 x 5.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $450


From the earliest finds of several years ago this is a classic San Pedro Corralitos Mimetite. More recent finds never reached the quality of the original discovery. The very best classics have a wet-look luster, super bright color and very high price tags when available. They are world class.. This piece is pretty good ( far better than recent specimens) but does not reach the top color or luster that would add a zero to the price. The form on this is excellent and displays well but luster and color are not quite the level of the best pieces.
Quartz on Sphalerite and Galena
stock #8.1-394
Krushev Dol Mine, Madan, Rhodope Mts.
, Bulgaria
10.9 x 6.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $290


Impressive and lusterous, this is super esthetic! A cluster of very sharp undamaged Sphalerites reaching 2.7 CM are stacked in a very nice arrangement. The real interest are the sprays of delicate needle quartz. that decorate the piece and add lots of contrast. As a bonus there are some good Galenas as well. This can be displayed from several angles. Despite some damage to a few quartz needles, this is still a a top shelf piece from a very important location that is now closed.
Adamite (Spherical crystal aggregate)
stock #7 MEX 413
Ojuela Mine, Level 6, Municipio de Mapimi
Chihuahua, China
7 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $480


A Mexican classic! The Adamites of the Ojuela Mine are probably the worlds best. Many styles and colors are known, but almost nothing of quality has been found for many years. This type of ball aggregate is very desirable, getting hard to find and usually very expensive. On this one the large ball is 2.3 CM and well placed, it is fully crystallized with good green color. A flat spot on the top seems to be a contact but there is no damage anyplace. Quite esthetic and very well priced.
